Crowdsourcing Challenge

5 Dec

Our picture was:

München Hauptbahnhof or Munich Central Station in Munich, Germany.
The GPS coordinates are 48.0827°N 11.3318°E.

The biggest details we noticed in the picture were that it was a train station, the GRUNDIG advertisement and the signage in a foreign language.

We started by having google translate the wording and found it was in German.

We then looked up train stations in Germany on google image to try and find one that looked similar.

We followed that picture to the original site it got posted on and found that the blogger said it was the München Hauptbahnhof.

We then google searched images of that particular train station so we could get some verification of what the blogger said.

After verifying with those images, we were pretty confident that we had figured it out. We then decided to verify with other sources such as facebook friends and Craig’s wife who is from Germany.

We posted on facebook and got several responses that confirmed our guess.

We talked to Craig’s wife and she confirmed as well.

So that is how we figured out where this picture was taken!
